Chalet Le Koissou

Only 70 metres from the Golf chairlift and the Lapin piste, guests at this chalet can ski in and out for most of the winter season. Also close to Meribel Village, the location is ideal for those looking to make the most of skiing and the entertainment that there is on offer in this eclectic ski village.

The chalet has been refurbished and has been changed not only in design but also the configuration of the interior. The chalet has been given a modern transformation and now is a ultra-stylish comtemporary space, but it still maintains a cosy and warm feel.  A large open-plan living and kitchen area opens out to a terrace where an outdoor hot tub gives guests the opportunity to relax and enjoy mountain views. The chalet has 4 bedrooms – 3 double/twin rooms and 1 bunkroom.  2 bedrooms are on the first floor, 1 on the ground floor and the double bunk room in the basement.  All 4 rooms have their own bathroom, 3 are en-suites, and the bunk room facilities are separate.

It is the perfect place for a hassle-free holiday and the location of the chalet makes it easy to wander into Meribel Village and a short shuttle bus ride to the main town as well as great skiing access to the rest of the Three Valleys.

Resort details

Meribel

Meribel is an attractive chalet-style purpose-built ski resort situated right at the heart of the world’s largest ski area.

Meribel is the middle resort of the major three resorts (Meribel, Courchevel and Val Thorens) that make up the massive Trois Vallées ski area. The combination of great skiing, a top location and the pretty chalet village makes Meribel one of the most popular destinations for British holiday-makers.

Ski Area

The best thing about Meribel is its location. Right in the middle of the Three Valleys, which has a massive 600km of skiable terrain, it is arguably the best place to stay if you want to experience the whole area effortlessly. The local skiing in Meribel is varied with some long cruisy blues, as well as some more challenging slopes, such as the Mont Vallon runs and some good off-piste when there is enough snow.

The ski lifts in the Three Valleys are all very fast and efficient, such as the Saulire Express Gondola, which takes people from the bottom of Meribel to the Saulire Peak (2700m) and the slopes of Courchevel in just 12 minutes. Getting to Val Thoren takes a bit longer, but is still relatively easy to do. As the region is so popular, big queues can often form at the resort-connecting lifts, especially at the beginning and ending of the ski day and at peak times in the season such as half-term.

The Resort

Depending on how you classify things, it comprises five different settlements. The first and lowest is Brides-les-Bains which lies at an altitude of just 650m. It is linked to Meribel by a three-stage telecabine but the days when you can return to Brides-les-Bains on skis are very limited.

Next comes Les Allues, a sleepy old Savoyarde village with one modest hotel and a handful of privately run catered chalets. A little further up the hill lies Meribel-Village (1,340m), which has grown in size thanks to the ‘Les Fermes de Meribel-Village’ development of chalet-style apartment blocks. Nowadays Meribel-Village easily links into the main Meribel ski area via a four-seater chairlift.

The principal Meribel settlement is simply called Meribel and sprawls up a west-facing hillside from 1,400m to 1,750m. This is the place that most people think of when they talk about Meribel ski holidays and it is arguably the prettiest post-war purpose-built resort in Europe, largely thanks to its Scottish founder, Colonel Peter Lindsay. While other new French resorts were being built in rather unattractive raw concrete, Meribel began as a collection of wooden chalets and the new properties are still built in this style today.

Lastly there is Meribel-Motterat which is higher up the valley and has more ski in/ski out access to the slopes and is particularly good for beginners.

Much of the accommodation in Meribel is not ski in/ski out so you have to use the free public bus or often with catered chalets there is a driver service to take you to and from the Chaudanne (where the main lifts are).

If you want to explore the town it is easily accessed by walking or by bus once skis and boots have been removed. Meribel has a very lively nightlife, multiple clubs and bars stay open late and if you are in the main Meribel resort it is not far to walk in. If you are a bit further out you might prefer a more relaxing night in, making your own entertainment in your chalet.
